    This is the first R I have ever owned and I'm just starting to learn about these dinosaurs! My question and I'm pretty sure of the answer is, is the rear brake caliper suppose to rotate freely? I'm pretty sure it's not but mine does and I cant figure out how to tighten it so it doesn't move. What I mean is if you roll the quad backward it moves back and if you roll it back forward it rotates back forward.

    No, it's not supposed to move. You're missing a bolt.

    Man I looked at it and I still cant figure out how to fix it. There looks to be no bolt or anything to tighten it for that matter. The caliper is bolted to the brake stay but everything moves an I don't understand why??? I also got a good look and the rear rotor while I was there and it is cracked all to hell. So looks like I need to buy a new rotor as well.

    Look on the swingarm and see if your missing the collar that the brake stay goes over. If you have it then everything is good..There is some movement back and forth, just not a ton.

    How much is it actually moving? I was thinking the slot on the brake stay might not have been hitting the piece on the swinger that keeps it in place, but it appears everything is there.
